HELLO...MY NAME IS LAURA...
My style is artistic natural documentary photography.
What do I love more than photography?
We would build a bespoke way of working that suits you; the following is an idea for you to see how I work.
Getting to know you.
Getting to know you really helps me produce the best photographs for your epic celebration.
A practice shoot/meet over a drink is included in the package, so please take advantage of this however you choose. We will of course have a chat via phone or Skype, but even better than this we can chat face to face with a cuppa or a glass of red and take a few snaps.
We'll stay in touch: drop me an email when you've made some creative decisions, I'm a big fan of a quick phone call, share a Pinterest board, add me to Facebook, or send me your favourite existing pic of you as a couple; whatever is the easiest way for you.
We'll touch base before the wedding and go over the details and changes, confirm any formal photos, timings and you can introduce me via Whatsap or an email to the key players of the wedding so that I can ensure they know how they can help me on the day so you can just relax and enjoy your day. You will chat to me about who is important and I'll be on hand throughout to capture moments that arise.
I work from getting ready until the first dance, which is approximately 10 hours of shooting. I am happy to do some organised photographs, but suggest no more than 5. The time adds up and you will want to enjoy your day.
During the day I obviously capture many beautiful natural moments of the two of you but it's worth thinking about stealing a moment away from the hustle and bustle to share a moment away from the crowd. The more this is about the two of you, the more you focus on each other and the more magical and real the photos are. Many couples enjoy the chance to breathe, touch base and do whatever you need to digest the moment.
After the day.
After the day I will provide you with approximately 5 of my favourite photographs from the day within ten days of the wedding. You can share these as you wish. I then commit to having the rest edited within 6 weeks of the wedding. These will be shared as a online album via digital download which I can share with you and your wedding party via email. It’s really hard to say the exact number of images you will receive; however, I commit to providing at least 400 lovingly crafted images.
I would also take this opportunity to share your day on my website and Instagram, as long as this is something you are happy to support. I am always willing to discuss this further.
Prints can be ordered and paid for directly through your online gallery. I work with a professional printing company called Loxley Colour. They are award winning and deliver unrivalled quality prints. They will ensure that the print colour is matched to how they have been beautifully edited for screen and it really is worth paying a little extra for top quality photographs.
I LOVE LOVE love their Giclée fine art prints and always encourage couples to get at least 2/3 of their favourite moments printed & framed to be part of their married lives (and they make perfect wedding gifts). The technique helps retain tonality and hue on archival paper that ensures longevity, adds distinction and definition.
Prices starting at £1300
Please feed me! I will generally take a break when you are all eating and appreciate a hot meal and a chance sit down for an hour.
I charge an extra £250 for a second shooter, which is worth considering for a big wedding, or if you want to be able to capture both parties getting ready or simply to get more coverage.
I offer a discount of £200 for weddings that are within an hour drive of GL20 5NF as this saves me lots of travel accommodation money.
Please think about investing in framed fine art prints or an album. This can wait until after the wedding and you can also enquire about gift vouchers to add to your wedding list.
- Also enquire for a photo film- a slideshow of some of the best photos with clips of the speeches that you can sit and watch until you're old and grey with a glass of scotch.
A little bit about me…..
I studied Fine Art at Leeds University, love travelling, meeting new people and creating curious and beautiful things. I am currently based in the Cotswolds where I grew up but have lived in Canada, London and Australia. I love yoga, movies, music and vodka martinis!
If this is all music to your ears, then I’m excited. Let’s arrange to chat. You can see the contract and agreement with T&Cs too which you will need to fill in
Sound like a match? Then lets book it in. Confirm all the details, time & places, any extras and then I can pop an agreement in the post and I take a 25% deposit for the day. Give me a call or drop me an email if you have any other questions.
You have a date with me to use how you wish, whether it's an engagement shoot soon, or a practice shoot no less than a month before the wedding or just a drink and chin wag....I'll look forward to meeting you both.
Best of wishes, Laura xx
